    Looking for an abortion online? Listen to this first.

    In the wake of the devastating Supreme Court ruling on abortion, questions are swirling about how to stay secure online. Should you delete your period tracker app? What about Incognito mode, or using a VPN?

    Computer scientist and social media expert Dr. Jen Golbeck has been running a popular TikTok series educating people on how to be more secure while navigating abortion online.

    Kanye West “associate” and other Trump cronies threatened 2020 Georgia election workers

    Kanye West “associate” and other Trump cronies threatened 2020 Georgia election workers

    In the 4th installment of the January 6 hearings, we heard from Ruby and Shay Freemen, election workers in Georgia. Trump and his allies (including a Kanye West “associate” ) baselessly accused them of vote tampering in the presidential election.

    Their testimony is a heartbreaking reminder of the human cost of disinformation, conspiracy theories, and lies.

    Talia Jane Versus Yelp: BEST OF TANGOTI

    Talia Jane Versus Yelp: BEST OF TANGOTI

    This week, we spoke to labor reporter Kim Kelly about the wave of union organizing at places like Amazon and Starbucks. In light of that, let's revisit our conversation with Talia Jane, who made headlines back in 2016 for asking her company Yelp to pay workers a living wage.

    After Talia Jane called out Yelp for failing to pay a living wage, she became the "entitled millennial" poster child. But she was actually right.

Wide Awake and Dreaming ,

Good content but

I can hardly believe how many commercials there are.

Unemployed Hero ,

Engaging

The Missy Elliott episode was especially wonderful!

In some episodes the background music can overpower what the host or guest is saying - not enough to stop listening though

lostlesbianlove ,

Found you on JBU

Will continue to listen here
